Watch Soyuz rocket deliver Russian navigation satellite into orbit (VIDEO)

The launch was conducted on Saturday night. The rocket was equipped with upper stage Fregat, which propelled a GLONASS-M satellite into orbit. The satellite is part of Russian national GPS-like navigation system.

The rocket successfully ejected all stages and was tracked by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces during the launch, the Defense Ministry said.

Earlier, a similar rocket delivered a military satellite into orbit. The two recent Soyuz launches come after a Soyuz-FG rocket failed to transport cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin and NASA’s Nick Hague to the International Space Station on October 11. Both space travelers made it home safe and unharmed.
